MONTE IDA released a notable EP back in 2014, but it wasn't until this year's 'Corinth' EP that I truly began to immerse myself in the band's material. The French punk band plays dreamy and screamy hardcore that is its own beast, although comparisons to bands such as Shizune, Kaddish, Lautrec and especially the new stuff to Gillian Carter are quite apt.

This new 'Corinth' EP is four tracks of progressive and quirky screamo that begins with the exceptional "Lete" which, let's be honest, screams of Gillian Carter and newer Raein, but that's a really really good thing. Next up is the playful, screamy and ultimately Italian sounding "Averno" which has a very positive vibe to it, as does most of the music that MONTE IDA releases. From the debut 'Devotion' EP, songs such as "Teramene" scream Lautrec with the dancey and chill screamy sections. There's also "Eco" which has a heavy Cease Upon The Capitol imprint and the initial onset of Gillian-Carter-initis which the band has adopted heavily on their new record, while "Tauri" sounds like Shizune and Youth Novel.

If you have yet to check out MONTE IDA I'd strongly recommend doing so now, just jam those youtube videos below and then donate some money to the band. I'm super excited to hear what comes next!
